Curriculum

Brief CV

MSc in Pharmacy (UB, 1996), I completed my PhD in Dr. Albert Tauler's lab at the School of Pharmacy in the University of Barcelona, working on the role of PI3K/Akt signalling in the control of 6PF2K/Fru-2,6-BPase expression, a key enzyme in the regulation of the glycolytic flux in proliferative tissues.

After my PhD (UB, 2001, European PhD Mention) I joined Eric Lam's lab at the Cancer Research UK in Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College London, where I was awarded a World Health Organization postdoctoral fellowship (IARC/OMS). My postdoctoral work was focused on the functional role of FOXO transcription factors in the response to chemotherapeutic agents such as Imatinib (Gleevec), and the molecular mechanisms whereby FOXOs regulate cyclin D2 and Bim expression.

In 2005 I was awarded a 'Ramˇn y Cajal' fellowship and joined the IUNICS at the University of the Balearic Islands. In late 2006, together with Dr. Villalonga, I contributed to establish a new research group: Cancer Cell Biology Group.

I am presently continuing my work on FOXO functions in the response to chemotherapeutic drugs. Specifically, I have started new projects in collaboration with clinical fellows to determine the functional role of the PI3K/Akt/FOXO pathway in the development of non-Hodgkin Lymphomas and its effector role in the response to new antitumoral agents.

My research career has been continuous since 1996. I have published 29 research articles, 8 of which as first or corresponding author, and a book chapter. Since 2007 I have been principal investigator in 2 research projects from Instituto de Salud Carlos III, 1 from the local government and 3 from private institutions. Also, my research group has participated in a national project from Programa Consolider-Ingenio 2010 (Ministerio de Economia y Competitividad, 2011-2016). As a member of UIB, I have organised 5 international meetings in translational oncology.
